Weekly Wardrobe

Hey babes!

Today I am going to document my weekly wardrobe this week, I pretty much keep it simple during the week because I have to mostly chase J around. I love clothing like way too much and sometimes a lot of the outfits I wear during the week don’t actually make it over to the blog.

So I wanted to put up a post that would give you guys some insight on what I wear weekly. =] if this is something you guys like, please let me know.

Ruffled Waist Belted Shorts

If you follow me on my insta-stories you know that behind the scenes I have been trying my best to get a little space in my house to photograph outfits.  I don't really have a ton of time away from the house or someone to take all of my photos either.

I don't currently make any money off of my blog so I am trying my best to build up my content in hopes to one day make some sort of living off of it but until then I can't really afford to hire a photographer so I do the job myself.

My set up is pretty basic, I have a few studio lights, a tripod and my sony A6000.  I have a remote timer and I use my phone to see if I am in focus it takes a few tries before I get it in focus and I don't look like a complete weirdo. 

I have been looking for some shorts with this ruffle waist because I feel like they are really in style this summer and look perfect for a vacation or a weekend out with the boys.  

I picked up this olive green color because it is one of my favorite colors and it also goes great with my skin tone. 

I paired it with this white Guess body suit because it makes tucking is look more seamless and is also comfortable and chic.  I will do a post on how and why to wear body suits.

Showing Off-The-Shoulder for Summer

Whew! This week is flying my loves and I can't believe the weekend is almost here.  

I wanted to share with you guys this new top I picked up from Old Navy.  It is absolutely perfect for the summer.  With the weather being so up and down here in all of the states {northern friends I feel for you} wearing clothing out of the house can be unpredictable to say the least. 

But we are in Houston and Texas heat can be no joke.  I love this top because it is perfect for taking J to the park and then transforming into the perfect evening outfit with just a change of shoes, or pants.  

I haven't showed shoulder in quite a while and with all of the off-the-shoulders cute tops I have seen all over instagram, I couldn't wait to get my hands on one.

I wasn't sure this color was going to suit me, but I really love it.  I have absolutely no green in my wardrobe besides camo and with the bright colors arriving for summer, I felt like this one was perfect. 

It is bright and colorful enough to wear all summer long, I am also super excited to pack it for our cruise later this year.  

I paired my off-the-shoulder with a pair of distressed denim and some sandals but I can see this with shorts and some vans or even some jeggings with pointy toed flat.  I can totally do some more insta-stories with how to pair outfits with shoes if that is what you guys are looking for. 

Details:
Top: Old Navy
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Target

Most weekends we don't have the pleasure of spending much down time alone together, we are normally catching up with family, or doing all of the things adults have to do. 

On Sunday, we went to eat lunch at Lee's Fried Chicken and Donuts, if you visit definitely try their Bacon, Onion, Jalapeno Marmelade, the Sweet Sriracha Syrup, and the Poblano Sauce.  We will have to visit again ourselves minus J, he was well-behaved it is just entirely too hard to stay clean while eating fried chicken and trying to feed a little one at the same time. 

Then we came home and relaxed.  We let J run wild upstairs (and it literally looks like a tornado hit our upstairs living room and his bedroom) until he literally crawled on both of us and fell asleep.

E took a much needed nap and I tried to nap but as soon as I finally fell asleep his alarm went off making sure we didn't waste our entire day sleeping, but it wouldn't have hurt to sleep a little longer.

Here are a couple of snaps from our day, plus outfit details below.

You guys I am so excited to share this post with y'all today!
  
I finally got myself a remote trigger and have been able to take my own photos.  E is always so busy and I would get so mad that I don't have one of those IG husbands that every one talks about. 

I knew I had to do something because I was ready to take my blog photography to the next level and I kept promising my loyal readers that I would.  So it was definitely time to actually work on it. 

J and I had so much fun - OKAY, I am lying here.

He had fun picking up rocks and running from mom while I tried desperately to get good photos of him.  I just had fun editing these.  

I lucked out by having a big girl camera because of wedding and portrait photography so I have to use it to my advantage.

This is a really old dress that has been hanging in my closet for years, my weight was the worst before J and I wasn't ever able to drop the weight Ill chalk it up to happiness. But this beauty was just hanging in my closet and I am so glad to finally wear it.  

I love to pair things with a simple pump, these are Steve Madden Daisie Classic Pumps and they are one of my favorite pairs of shoes. 

I didn't add any accessories because if you know anything about having a little one less is more.  Your earrings will have to come out, and your necklace will have to come off.

If you do want to pair this with a cute earring I suggest these from Shop Morning Lavender 
If you want a simple make up look like mine, then check out my 7 Product Make Up Look.  It is my normal every day make up with a red lip.

Casual Memorial Weekend Outfit Inspiration

Finally Memorial Weekend is here and it seems like I have been looking forward to this all year. Lately my weeks and days are all running together and I can't seem to catch them.  This weekend however, I plan to sit back and do some major relaxing and the only way to do that is to be in casual mode. 

am in desperate need of replenishing my white converse and I think I may get another pair of Keds too.  I have dogs who love to step all over my feet so I typically try to keep a pair of flip flops in the car to change into prior to running out to play with them. 

My other favorite thing right now is jeggings because they are super comfortable, and white nail polish I can't seem to get enough.  I went with a mauve colored lip for this look because I feel like it goes perfectly with the camo hat.

The hint of turquoise was solely to add a little summer flare, and the winged necklace I want in my life like yesterday.

What are you up to this memorial weekend?
